Dashboard lights not working

My nissan lucino (same as a sunny i think) dashboard backlights dont work, so at night I cant see the speedo or any of the air conditioning controls etc. none of the fuses below the steering wheel have blown, but the INJ fuse by the battery keeps blowing, not sure whats going on, as far as i know the rest of the car works fine. Just had a new stereo installed but got it rechecked and no wires are disconnected or anything. Whats causing the fuse to blow and my dash lights not to work..?

    Tail lights and running lights don't work. Blown 10a fuse in engine compartment. Disconnected all connectors to front and rear tail and running lights plus license plate light. Fuse still blows. My son recently installed an aftermarket radio and I had him disconnect everything from the radio. Fuse still blows with all the above mentioned connectors loose. I have doubts that this is caused by a short in the wiring harness. I cant escape the thought that the radio is the culprit, but with everything disconnected? One other thing, panel lights are on bright but no dimmer control.

I have the same problem too. Just replaced a new cd player then the dashboard and panel lights stopped working....

Could it be the dimmer switch? headlight switch? or some kind of fuse is broken??

Please help.

No insult intended, but are you sure the lights on dash aren't just dimmed out? I fell for that one when it went through the car wash. Wiping down everything one of them rolled the dash dimmer. Good luck. And that inj looks like an abreviation for injector. That needs to be looked into cause something or an injector is shorted. good luck

My dashboard lights dont work


Have someone check fuse under dashboard. Some dashboards have lights wired in series. If one light goes out, they all go out.

If the car cranks well then might have a loose connection to dashboard or a bad ground. I don't think this is much help but might be a starting place.

My dashboard light does not come up.


Hi,
I'm assuming you mean the backlighting that illuminates the dials and clocks?
If so, do all the other lights, such as on the heater panel, and window switches work?
If so it's just a problem with the instrument panel.
Have you tried operating the dashlight dimmer switch? Sometimes if it's left in the same position for a long time the connection gets a bit dirty (like a crackly volume control on a stereo)
So it might be an idea to work it back and forth to see what happens.
Did this happen suddenly? That may indicate a bad connection to the dash unit.
Give the dash a slap above the clock units (you never know, it's worked for me)
It doesn't sound like a serious problem
The bulbs in the dash do gradually "blacken up" and do have to be changed periodically.
But you don't notice until the last one has gone
Please check for ANY other electrical items not working first.
Electricity can do some strange things in cars.
Hope I've been of some help.
Kev.
